Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, (R-GA) has nominated Kyle Rittenhouse for the Congressional Gold Medal for defending Kenosha, Wisconsin, from rioters.
Rittenhouse was recently acquitted of murder charges after a jury found that he had acted in self-defense in killing two rioters and wounding a third.
The Congressional Gold Medal is the highest honor that Congress can award, and it would represent a huge statement to grant it to Rittenhouse.
Republicans have been quick to offer support to Rittenhouse and his family. On the opposite side of the spectrum, Democrats have done everything in their power to slander and defame Rittenhouse for daring to stand up to violent rioters.
Because Democrats control both chambers of Congress, there is little chance Rittenhouse will come anywhere near the Congressional Gold Medal.
Of course, the symbolism behind Representative Greene’s actions is what really matters. Republicans like Greene are paying attention and are looking out for regular Americans who are brave enough to stand up to the violent mob.
